Got the new windshield in and rear window. Yes the winshield guy said he has to urethane it in or it's a $10,000 fine and he will lose his license but enough of that! The passenger door is all together...tomorrow the drivers door and then on to the bed and such...

If he did urethane the seal, make sure he didn't cover your weep holes.

Grille

I bought the grill off of one of the members on here. It's used but I'm just going to clean it up, and replace the the bolts with black cap screws. It'll look nice when done I think. I'm not sure where he bought it new though.

Looks great Dell. I see you got the grille ok. I got the grille from Aim Industries. www.truckin.com I have bought a bunch of stuff from them but I don't like them because they seem to charge too much for shipping. They also have screwed up my order several times. I could not find the grille anywhere else.

Yes I did! I took the grille apart and cleaned it with acid. Then I masked off the front and painted it from the backside with krackle black in my paint gun. It came out beautiful. I also replaced the screws with black allen head screws. It looks awesome!:hat

love the blue and the grille looks way better with the center bar in there. hope you get decent box sides, ordered mine thru napa from a distributer called grandwest, only ordered one as the parts guy told me to expect a lil shipping damage as its a longbed. luckily it came without a dent amnd fit good other than opening up the bolt holes around wheel well

I'll take some pics of the bedsides today and try to get them posted.

Ok the bedsides are actually pretty good but as any panel if you want it to look perfect you're gonna have to do some work. Had to shave it down in a few spots, touch up a few spots here and there. I'm hoping to have it painted by the weekend if all goes well....

The Phantom Grille required some customizing. I had to make brackets that would work and make the parking lights fit behind the grille. So what I did was I swapped the left and right parking lights and installed them upside down using speed nuts.



Then i drilled an extra hole in the lower valance and secured them to the lower valance using black trim screws.



The quality of the pix suck because I used my cell phone but here are some more...

That's what I had to do with my turn signals. I should have told you that, sorry. You will have to drill some drain holes in the bottom of them too. I found that out the hard way. They'll fill up with water when you wash it or if it rains. How do I post pictures in my Text? I tried to post some pictures but I could not do it. Thanks

I don't have any problems with them filling up with water knock on wood. To post pix you need to host the image somewhere. Upload it to a website like photobucket and then post the url in brackets or in the image link
